V. Bonding with the Cards:
Most practitioners have agreed that the best way to bond quickly and bond
well with your tarot cards is to sleep with them under your pillow at
night and by just using them often.
By sleeping with the cards under your pillow, you allow the spirit
of the cards as well as the Oracle into your being. Being asleep, most
of your guards are down and the spirit can bond with you. Different practitioners
follow different guidlines for keeping the cards under your pillow. Some
sleep with one card of the Major Arcana under their pillow at a time, taking
it away only when the figure or concept on the card appears in their dream.
Some place the whole of the Major Arcana or even the whole deck under their
pillow until they feel that it is the right time to remove them. Everyone
does what works best for them. These methods are all optional, but they
work for the vast majority, and bonding with the cards will allow you to
have deeper, more meaningful readings.
